|U.S. drops some claims against Texas voter ID law - |
By Julia Harte WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department, in a shift from its stance under former President Barack Obama, is dropping a discrimination claim against a Texas law that required voters to present identification at the polls, according to a draft court filing the agency sent the law's opponents on Monday. The Campaign Legal Center, one of several private groups alleging that the 2011 voter ID law was meant to discriminate against black and Hispanic people, said it received a notification from the Justice Department on Monday that the department would withdraw its discriminatory intent claim. The Justice Department is doing so because the Texas legislature is considering changing the law in ways that might "cure the deficiencies" in it, according to a draft copy of the motion that the department sent to the Campaign Legal Center.

|Trump seeks 'historic' increase of 9 percent in U.S. military's budget - |
President Donald Trump is seeking what he called a "historic" 9 percent increase in military spending, even as the United States has wound down major wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and remains the world's strongest military power. Trump will ask Congress to boost Pentagon spending in the next fiscal year by $54 billion in his first budget proposal and slash the same amount from non-defense spending, including a large reduction in foreign aid, a White House budget official said on Monday. The president does not have the final say on federal spending.
